While undertaking the Lemon Detox Diet, strenuous exercise should be avoided as intense exertion encourages toxins to be rabsorbed rather than eliminated. When we engage in vigorous activity the body is forced to call upon extra reserves of energy and synthesizes energy from protein and fat. This is a demanding process distracting the body from its cleansing priorities and when compounded by the release of lactic acid from muscular activity it only increases the toxic load.
Gentle exercise can however be very helpful to the cleansing process. The key is finding the right balance of activity and rest. Adequate rest is crucial during the Lemon Detox Diet, while resting the body performs its vital cleansing tasks. Most athletes return to full training after the diet with renewed energy and enthusiasm. You’ll find that your body performs more efficiently when it is cleansed and purified, experiencing higher energy levels and performance.
